Off to the show!

Hi Everyone! Tomorrow I'm leaving for New York to see some friends and to attend NYIGF. Here's a sneak peak at some of the collections that I'm debuting.... I like to make some goodies with my art to decorate the booth, and this is what I've come up with this year. Wish me luck!

Binder with paper and pencils and pencil cup with art from Make Believe.
Frame and key holder with art from Fresh.
Lamp, tissue box and plaques for a kid's room with art from Circus.

This is what I've been up to....

I've spent the last I don't know how many weeks getting ready for NYIGF, and this evening finds me painting, glueing, and sewing a whole lotta fun stuff with my artwork on it, to decorate my booth. I just finished this tissue box cover, with artwork from my new Circus collection, and I think its darling :) I used iron-on transfer paper and my ol' reliable Epson Photo 1280 printer, and ironed on the art to white cotton fabric, and put this little guy together. Forgive the photo... I know its kinda dark, but I'm dead on my feet tired and I'm about to go to bed. I'll post more and nicer photos of all my booth mock-ups when they're all finished. Whoo hoo!

Losing my mind...

hello all you out in blog-land,

I've been working what feels like nonstop, getting all my artwork ready for my next tradeshow, the New York International Gift Fair, in a few weeks.  And oh my lord I'm cracking already :)  Here's a peak at my newest collection - Circus - debuting at the show.  This will be my first time at NYIGF.... it starts January 30th, in NYC, at the Javit's.... wish me luck!
